A Utah Highway Patrol trooper is fine after his patrol car was side-swiped by a semi-truck on Interstate 15 Sunday morning.
Sunday's crash was the second in a little more than two months for Trooper James Wright, ABC 4 News reports.
According to Utah Highway Patrol, Wright was stopped in the right emergency lane in the southbound lane of I-15 near Lehi at about 6:20 a.m. Sunday. Wright had just cleared a traffic stop and was finishing his notes when a semi truck drifted into Wright's lane and side-swiped the patrol vehicle on the driver side.
After Saginaw Township Officer Jeff Koenig was injured, he managed to radio for help. "I've been shot!" Koenig said. "I got shot in the face!"
